60th Anniversary Service
Speaker: Chris Wulff
The coming week is a week of Visioning for Don Heights, where we have started by taking a look at our past through our anniversary celebration, we look at our present and we look at where we want to be in the future. It is a time to look at who we are and how this Congregation can express that. Chris Wulff will give us food for thought on the Process of Visioning.
Christopher Wulffis a member at First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto and an M.Div student preparing for UU ministry at Emmanuel College at the University of Toronto. Sex education was his first job after a paper route, doing peer sex education and surveying for East Metro Toronto Health when only 13. It has remained a passion throughout his life, and teaching OWL is often at the centre of how that passion gets lived out. Certified as a trainer for every level of OWL from Kindergarten to Adult, he also volunteers with Que(e)rying Theology, a program of the multi-faith centre at the University of Toronto.

The Harper Government's Attack on Sex Workers
Speaker: Antonia Zerbisias
Prostitution is, and always has been, legal in Canada. When three Ontario sex workers launched a challenge against three sections of Canada’s Criminal Code which they claimed made their legal trade unconstitutionally dangerous, they went all the way to the Supreme Court – which last December agreed with them. Retaliation from the Harper Government, in its ongoing effort to maintain its Christian Evangelical base out west, was swift.
Antonia Zerbisias has been with the Star since 1989, serving as a media critic, political and cultural columnist, Montreal correspondent and feature writer. She has won the National Newspaper Award for critical writing and was nominated for Investigative Reporting. She has co-hosted Inside Media for CBC Newsworld as well as the business show Venture for the main network. Originally from Montreal, she holds an honours MBA and is active with dog rescue groups.
